With a heavy heart, Brian made the tough decision to close Scapegoat Tattoo in April 2024. However, he's embarked on an exciting new journey by teaming up with his brother, John, to establish Wilson Brothers Tattoo. Located in the Buckman neighborhood, we remain in the familiar Stark St. building, now accessible via the entrance on 13th.

Our commitment to vegan products and ethical sourcing continues unchanged, as does our support for local businesses. Operating six days a week from 12 to 7:30 pm, our small team, comprising Brian and John, welcomes a rotating roster of guest artists. Devoted to the artistry and tradition of tattooing, we prioritize delivering enduring quality in every piece.

For inquiries, please reach out via phone or email, providing all relevant project details. While we don't schedule appointments over the phone, we're eager to discuss your ideas in person. Please note that price quotes are best discussed directly with your artist. Contact us at 503-232-4628 or


Our rates reflect sustainability for our artists and generally include their drawing time. You may call for pricing as rates vary depending on your project and artist, but we highly recommend sharing your budget with your artist at the time of consultation.


All appointments must be made by emailing the artist directly or in person. We require 48 hours notice for cancellation or rescheduling, otherwise your forfeit your deposit. We retain a  a minimum $100 non-refundable deposit to hold a tattoo appointment, which is deducted from the cost of your tattoo once it is completed, ie: your last session. Deposits for larger, multi-session tattoos can vary between artists.

Your deposit is good for as long as it takes to complete your tattoo, however, your deposit is forfeit in the event of:

-more than 6 months pass without an appointment or communication.

-rescheduling an appointment more than twice.

-failure to appear for a scheduled appointment without at least 48 hours notice.

This policy is meant to ensure that you are committed to the agreed upon project, and that you maintain a line of communication with your artist, even as schedules and finances dictate availability. With this in mind, please be sure to notify us if your phone number or e-mail address changes, as these are often the only methods of communication we have. 


All artwork will be available at the time of your appointment. Due to the amount of drawing each artist has to do, we can not make and edit multiple drafts for each design. Your consultation is meant to ensure that you and your artist are on the same page in regards to your project and all that it entails. We strive to make the best tattoo for each client, and we are happy to make any necessary changes and further explain the design choices made for your tattoo.


Thank you for choosing us, we look forward to working with you!
